Like a speakeasy, there’s no signage. If you want to eat with the locals, look no further. Simple and authentic. Small plates all delicious. Fried cheese, salad, meatballs, all the usuals. Friendly and happy service. The ambiance is its authenticity. People rolling their own cigarettes...More

We were in Athens for three days and ate at a lot of tavernas with traditional Greek food. This was by far the best! The meatballs were tender and flavorful, the tzatziki was delicious, and the Greek salad was one of the best things I've...More

Cosy little coffee shop and restaurant hidden away behind a closed door that looks like it leads into a run down house.

The place is old and falling apart, which is part of its charm. A real greek tavern with typical food. The service and staff are great. The music and the overall environment makes it a special place. A must go if you are in Athens...More

We had dinner in this wonderful taverna, hidden behind a door in a side street not far from Monastiraki. We had a great meal, and very much enjoyed the local vibe: no tablecloths, a very simple and straightforward menu and great food. The chicken with...More

interesting blend of original small businesses with
the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently

Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further
west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of
